Default What metro areas are Asians/Pacific Islanders the largest minority population?

From my knowledge only the San Francisco Bay Area (20%) and Seattle (13%) were the only metro areas with Asian/Pacific Islanders being the largest minority population.

Are there any other metro areas similar to those?

Honolulu by far, which around 46% Asian, 9% Pacific Islander.

Also I think Latinos slightly outnumber Asians overall in the Bay Area, less than 1% though so they are pretty much equal.

Actually now that I think about it Asians are not the minority in Honolulu but the majority. But a minority in the sense they are not white. I would also think Vancouver would be similar to Seattle's demographics with regards to Asians.

The San Gabriel Valley outside of LA, while obviously part of the broader LA metro area, is a heavily populated area that has a very high Asian population. Overall it's not the highest, although in certain cities within the valley Asian/Pacific Islanders are the largest group (although also minority only in the sense that they are not white). Outside of San Francisco, I believe the remaining 9 out of 10 cities in California with the largest Chinese populations are all located in the SGV.

Yes, there are a lot of others.

Sugar Land, TX (outside of Houston) is probably close to 25%.

If you break it down by individual cities and suburbs you can find places where there are pretty high concentrations of Asians. For example, Garden Grove, CA is 31% Asian.

I thought Ithaca's Asian community made up about 16% of the city's population. There are quite a few just outside of Ithaca too.

Good question, as I believe it usually does include South Asians. I'm not sure if this list does though.
